Tokyo Private Sightseeing Tour with English Speaking Driver

Great tour despite the rain and cloud

Reviewed by: Rachel, 2019/04/24

A really good tour to see Mount Fuji even though it was raining with snow underfoot and clouds we got a glimpse of the mountain on the way down
Our tour guide and driver were very knowledgeable and the bullet train for the return was fantastic. Lunch was very tasty and in a lovely restaurant. If you missed the Blossum’s in Tokyo you will still see them on this tour


  • Mount Fuji peaking through cloud




  • Great Blossum trees still out with the colder climate

Great introduction to Tokyo

Reviewed by: Ralph, 2019/04/04

Our driver, Shu, was prompt and courteous and spoke good English. The van was clean and modern. Since this was our first time in Tokyo, we relied on our driver to help us select sights to see. He went out of his way to create a great experience for us. He showed us the parks with cherry blossoms which was our main objective. He also pointed out other major sights that we returned to the next day via metro. He guided us to a non-touristy sushi restaurant for a very authentic Japanese lunch experience.

OK Driver but Not a Guide

Reviewed by: David Siegel, 2018/11/22

I can't complain about Sakai as a driver, since he picked us up on time, took us to all the places we had arranged to go, and got us back to our hotel right on time. As a tour guide, however, he disappointed us because he provided very little commentary about what we were seeing. When we asked questions he answered, but otherwise he did not volunteer much information as we drove through the city and its points of interest.

Veltra were really helping in creating this sight seeing tour to our specification.

Pick up: Our hotel in Kyoto
Drop: Our hotel in Nara

Tour: Yamazaki Distellery, Wasuka tea plantation

Masazumisan, our driver and guide was punctual, professional and patient.
I cannot recommend Veltra and their team in Japan highly.

Tokyo Private Sightseeing Tour with English Speaking Driver / Full Size Van

Reviewed by: Jeannette and Tony, 2018/10/02

The tour guide Yoshi was great. The tour started at the cruise ship dock (we arrived by ship) and ended at our hotel. Yoshi was very accomading He had a set tour but first asked if there was anything specific we wanted to see or do. This tour had a nice variety of stops, including "Oriental Bazaar" (great shopping for local items), and the kitchen district.
Great way to get a taste of this huge city.

Tour guide very respectful

Reviewed by: Nancy E, 2017/11/01

We were picked up promptly for our 3-hour tour. There was some misunderstanding, as our guide dropped us off at a shrine and went off to have breakfast. He had been told we only wanted a driver, and we had booked a "private guided tour". When he picked us up we figured out the misunderstanding. From then on he showed us many sites and was extremely respectful of us and our time constraints.

Great tour!

Reviewed by: Mamie, 2017/10/01

So glad we took this tour. We decided not to plan our day but instead asked our wonderful driver/tour guide to just take us to many different landmarks. Our driver was really nice and friendly. It was so nice to stop and get back in a car to be driven to the next location. It felt like when you visit a friend and they take you to sightsee.

Driver Mogi was polite and courteous. He took us to each of the places we had said we wanted to visit and happily explained what we were looking at and some history if appropriate. Those who say that you should stick to the subway are misguided. The traffic levels were fine.

We made arrangements for two days with the full size van with English speaking driver. The van arrived on time in both days, and the driver in both days was very courteous and helpful. Our family was traveling with my 85 year old mother, who cannot walk as easily as we can. By using this service, all of us enjoyed two days of sightseeing without tiring my mother out.

Tokyo Day Tour

Reviewed by: Shrikant Dikhale, 2016/06/13

We were 2 families (6 Adults) making a first trip to Japan in May 2016. We had only 3 days in Tokyo and so we decided to take a 1-Day Bus tour. However, my wife came across Veltra private sightseeing tour in a Van which was marginally higher than the bus tour ! So we decided to opt for this option ....and it turned out to be a great decision :-) . We had a very good guide, Ms. Tekano, who was very young and was enthusiastic and helpful in planning out itinerary. She also spoke English quite fluently which was very good for our group as none of us knew any Japanese whatsoever !
The best part of this trip was the flexibility as we started leisurely and went with the flow - no mad rush to meet deadlines !!
Will certainly do this for our second trip to Japan ....which we all hope is soon !!!
Strongly recommend if you are in group of 5 to 9.

Our original booking of 3 hours was extended to 5 hours as there were so much to see, taste & do.

Our driver, Eddie's command of English is good, hence it was very easy to communicate our needs & wish list to him.

Our family of 9 members (mainly old folks) managed to cover a lot of Tokyo under Eddie's guidance & driving, which we could not have accomplished without a vehicle or someone guiding us.

Way to Travel

Reviewed by: DarSaw, 2015/05/03

One of the wonderful benefits of hiring a custom tour is convenience. We were in Tokyo for a week and since we weren't familiar with the train systems, we decided to use Veltra's custom tour to sightsee. We visited the Ghibli Museum, Tsukiji Market and Akahibara electronic district the first time.

Once we knew where we wanted to do some serious shopping, we once again made reservations for a custom tour. It was a godsend to have this service both times. Needless to say, we filled the tricks of the car both times with shopping goodies.

Aside from the convenience, both drivers were professional, helpful and spoke English. It was a wonderful experience and we would reserve a custom tour again when we visit Tokyo.
